The colors of the leaf show up really well. But the central figure looks a bit lost. A copper tone might make it stand out a bit. Or even a bronze, something to make it pop a little bit better. kat
(Eric-) I would guess that this is a fantasy. The knot work makes me think Celtic. Beyond that the cover does not say much to me, I'm not sure what the earth/egg and leaf have to do with anything. It needs more to get my attention. I would also agree to make the knot work pop a bit better, change it's color or the background color. Green on Green is not helping.
Thanks for your comments. I was trying to make the tree look as if it was carved out of the wood, as it's described in the book, but I can see that it might be a little lost this colour.
I take this as something Celtic and Druidic. I feel as if I've seen this title before, not even counting the Lorax. Maybe I saw the book listed in another place. I don't especially like the background pattern. I might experiment with a photograph of actual trees and see if it looks better.
